Bar Lis Details:

🍔 Food:
Bar Lis has a menu of canapés that include Marinated Olives, Crudités, Frites, and even the Bar Lis Burger if you’re extra hungry. They’ve also got dessert items like an Ice Cream Sundae.

🍸 Drinks:
The cocktail list has a variety of craft highlights like the Strawberry Fields, made with Absolut Elyx Vodka, and the French Riviera, made with Sipsmith Gin and Green Chartreuse. The Summer Spritz is favorite as well with Tres Generaciones Plata and Lillet Blanc. You’ll also find a few beers, wine, and an expansive bottle list.

🎶 Music:
One of the best nights to visit Bar Lis is for their Tuesday jazz night. A band comes in around 9pm to seduce the crowd with live music. They also have a DJ that comes in to get people onto the modest dancefloor in the lounge with hip hop, EDM, and dance music.

If you reserve a seat in the garden area it makes for a great date night spot. The greenery, florals, and modern furnishings make for a romantic backdrop. You can also reserve a bottle service table in the lounge to chill on velvet sofas under the disco ball. The crowd is made up of trendy Hollywood types as expected. Arrive early to avoid the line as the door can be tough, especially on weekend nights.

📸 Photo Ops:
You’ll definitely want a pic on their signature pink and white striped couches on the terrace.
